URGENT ALERT Ė YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

MAGAZINE BAN ON THE MOVE IN THE ILLINOIS SENATE


Anti-gun extremist State Senator Dan Kotowski has introduced a ban on all
magazines having a capacity exceeding 10 rounds. The bill (SB1002) banning
magazines also requires large fines and prison sentences if you are caught
with magazines for AR-15 and other modern sporting rifles.

SB1002 IS A BOLD AND BRAZEN ATTACK ON THE 2ND AMENDMENT:

1. SB1002 will have no effect on the criminal use of firearms yet will infringe
on the right of law-abiding citizenís constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

2. SB1002 is a backdoor way to limit your ability to defend yourself and family
under the upcoming Illinois concealed carry law.

3. SB1002 is the first step towards the banning of semiautomatic rifles,
pistols and shotguns.

BLOOMBERG AND THE GUN GRABBERS WILL PUSH HARD TO GET SB1002 PASSED

Magazine bans are on the top of gun controllersí wish list this year. They
want to see Illinois join with the likes of New York, Maryland, California, and
now Colorado in the destruction of the 2nd Amendment.

ONLY YOU HAVE THE POWER TO STOP SB1002. ACT NOW OR LOSE ANOTHER
CHUNK OF YOUR GUN RIGHTS!

Here is what you need to do to stop SB1002:

1. Call your State Senator and politely tell the person who answers the
phone that you are a law-abiding Illinois firearm owner and that you oppose
SB1002 and you expect the Senator to vote against the bill when it comes to
the floor. If you do not know who your State Senator is, the Illinois State
Board of Elections has an interactive search page here:
www.elections.state.il.us/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddress.aspx

If you already know who your State Senator is and just need the contact
info, you can find that here: www.ilga.gov/senate/.

2. When you call your Senatorís office, you may hear all kinds of nonsense
about how SB1002 will not affect law-abiding gun owners. Politely tell the
person that you are not interested in hearing that, you are only interested in
seeing SB1002 defeated.

3. Pass this alert on to your friends and family and tell them to make calls as
well.

4. Post this alert to any and all Internet blogs or bulletin boards to which you
may belong.

5. Help keep ISRA on the frontlines of this fight for your rights, go the extra
mile and recruit a new ISRA member. Sign them up over the phone at 815-
635-3198, or browse to isra.org/join .

SPECIAL NOTICE: DO NOT call Senator Kotowski unless he is your Senator,
and even then be very careful. Kotowski has a track record of having the
State Police investigate and harass people that disagree with him.

illinois: Anti self-defense amendment to be considered in senate as early as today

contact your state senator immediately and urge him or her to oppose amendment 2 to senate bill 1002!

Today, in another attempt to further disarm the law-abiding residents in illinois, an amendment offered by state senator dan kotowski (d-28) to senate bill 1002, was heard by the senate executive committee. Amendment 2 to sb1002 would limit the sale and transfer of all standard capacity magazines. Rather than addressing criminals engaging in gang violence, chicago politicians want to limit the ability of law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves against those criminals.

In a state that is under court order to enact concealed carry reform laws for the self-defense of its residents, this restriction on standard capacity magazines is a step in the wrong direction. This legislation will only remove the ability of responsible gun owners to defend themselves and their loved ones.

It is critical that you contact your state senator and urge him or her to resist this legislative attempt to disarm and punish law-abiding citizens. Contact your state senator today and respectfully urge him or her to uphold illinoisans' right to self-defense by opposing amendment 2 to senate bill 1002.

Contact information for your state senator can be found here http://capwiz.com/nra/state/main/?state=il&view=myofficials .

RESIST TYRANNY - Not only does Kotowski trample your 2nd amendment rights, but your 1st amendment rights as well!

It was passed in the committee and now goes to the Senate for a vote, if it passes there it will then go on to the House.

Wont this bill call for confiscation of magazines and no grandfathering? Well shoot, I lost all my 30 rounders in a boating accident yesterday!

Mack Bolan 05-28-2013 05:53 PM

yeah, since they don't require a FOID to purchase, I sold all mine at a garage sale at a nice mark up earlier this year.

gee, talk about a law that creates God knows how many overnight felons in IL, as if the jails and prisons here aren't overcrowded enough all ready with legitimate offenders.

Well, to be perfectly honest, I don't see how this law could be any less difficult to pass or uphold than the AWB attempts earlier in the year or the Chicago handgun ban which has since been overturned.
